This is what greets you at Gardens by the Bay near the escalator. Carved from one piece of wood.
On another note, Singapore is often known as the lion city but it is unlikely that lions ever existed in Singapore. Read about how Singapore got its name here.

While joining the trees to my doily, I got a little restless and decided to start a new 'Under the African Sky' doily. This time I was going to use more solid colours but could not help myself but to add the variegated blue for the sky.
Looking forward to seeing the trees here? Stay tuned!

This pattern is from my newest pattern book by Tomoko Morimoto titled 'New Tatting'. This is found on page 110 of the book. I rather like this book. Patterns are not difficult and there is this doily I am dying to tat. Perhaps after the African Sky doily by Jane McLelland.
This pattern combines Josephine knots and tiny rings. In the book, a lighter ecru is used for the twin rings while I used a contrasting darker colour. Tatted in Flora Size 20 threads in pink and purple.
